  • "You closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them too-even when you are in the dark. Even when you're falling."
    • I really like this quote because sometimes we are always focused on what we see, sometimes we have to let go and TRUST. Trust is a very fragile thing, and I know what it's like to break it, have it broken, trust others, and have others trust me, and I think Morrie puts it beautifully :)
  • "The truth is, you don't get satisfaction from those things. You know what really gives you satisfaction? ...Offering others what you have to give."
    • This is what bothers me most about our culture today. Too much emphasis is being put on things that don't satisfy us, things that we love, but that don't love us back. This is a really good quote to live by.
  • "So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."
    • This is kind of the same thing that Morrie mentioned in my second favorite quote. We are chasing the wrong things, and in order to have a meaning and purpose in your life, you need to re evaluate those things in your life. It is a daily choise you have to make. Ask yourself, "Why am I getting up this morning?" "Will I die today, little bird?" "What is my motivation for doing this?" "Does this have real value?".
